Overview

For as long as she could remember, Cassie had fallen asleep listening to the river sighing and whispering beneath her bedroom window. She had discovered if she laid her ear on one of the logs that made up the wall separating her room from the swirling current, the sound was clear, as though it were magnified. She would wrap her quilt around her and lay her slim body along the logs, and dream that she was part of the water, always moving in slim silver streaks, catching the light.

My heart broke for cassie. I got mad at her parents for the things they did or didn't do. Then my heart was healed by the true love the family members have for each other.

This is a moving short story which treats the subject of loss and its attendant grief in a graceful,realistic manner, and is never overdone, but very understandable.

Cassie had two other brothers and sisters in her family. They had lived in a log cabin that her father had built for additional space for all of them to live in. They lived near a lake . They had said their morning prayers before they had eaten their breakfast every morning. They had lost a little brother who's name was Josh and Cassie was so sorry about all of it. I enjoyed this novel. ShelleyMA
